  • 1/3 lb. Kasseri cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. milk
  • Flour
  • Olive oil for pan frying
  • Brandy
  • Lemon juice

Cut a slice of Kasseri cheese about 1/3 inch thick. Mix egg with the milk. Dip cheese into the egg mixture, then dip into flour. Fry in a bit of oil in a heavy frying pan on medium heat until golden brown. Then turn. Flame with brandy, if you wish, but be careful. Add a squirt of lemon juice when the flame dies down. Serve with crackers or crusty bread.
